The chevrons on these two bands are a design that was initially born out of need. The bride's engagement ring has a low-set and on-axis square diamond, which neccessitated some sort of notch in the wedding band in order for the two to be snug when paired together. The upper surface of the ring is also sculpted to fit the varying thickness of the engagement ring's shank.
We decided to take design cues from that pairing for the groom's ring. The chevron and groove that runs around the circumference of the ring nicely mirrors the look of the engagement ring and wedding band when paired.
